Abstract: 

Jones subfactor theory studies inclusion of von Neumann algebras that are objects coming from functional analysis. It is connected to many area of mathematics such as tensor categories, knot theory, group theory, conformal field theory, random matrices and so on. Using examples I will present this beautiful theory and explain some of its interplay with other fields.
